Just some rough calculations suggests that a power10 socket with 30 cores could get around 480+ in specint if you take the 3x performance they talking about is comparing the highest end power10 Vs power9. Highest end power9 is clocked at 4ghz - quite a lot higher than the 3.4ghz submitted figure.

But I doubt IBM is overly concerned with specint - they would target OLTP workloads which should excel in these machines.

I doubt ibm will ever publish any non rate benchmarks - it is guaranteed to be lower than competition. Power10 is only increasing single thread performance by 20%. - so that would hardly catch up.
